    Attention to all new One Piece fans!

    Link

    Don't want to read the manga? Don't want to watch the anime? Have at least 15 minutes to spare?

    Watch her videos. Meapheandjunk is an American elementary school teacher teaching English in Japan. She's currently (at the time of writing) in the Skypeia Arc right now.

    How did she get into One Piece?

    Curious what her students were talking about in class, she asked her students what it was about. They told her about One Piece, and they had some sort of bargain I don't remember. So she tuned in at 10 am Eastern Time Tokyo, Japan on an early Sunday morning to see what the buzz was all about. She caught up on Luffy's flashback (yes it comes late in the series) and just pieced info from her high-school level Japanese. Being interested (partly because everywhere she goes OP is there) she then naturally watched a few more episodes and watched Movie 10 with her brother.

    Now she's doing in-depth reviews every 5 episodes. And yes, she finds it more interesting than FMA, Cowboy Bebop, and Death Note, 3 iconic series in the western anime fandom .. well, mostly just in the US but you get my point.

    I think you can drop the 'One Piece is for children' argument now

    EDIT: Keep in mind that she has never heard of One Piece until that incident, so we're basically seeing a fan in progress here. With no negative opinions or feedback to stop her from watching, I think she's reviewing pretty well for a newbie.

    My mind: you don't belong here.
    Don't judge my replies or my
    persona, constructed from the
    vibe and perceptions my avatar
    gives you. The contents of my
    reply doesn't represent the
    character in my ava (despite
    its origins), they represent
    the human behind the screen.

    Re: Attention to all new One Piece fans!

    I love these reviews! I'm gonna watch them all. When she reflects about the arcs, she is just spot-on in some topics. Sometimes I'd like that she gave more importance to some events, but overall I love her :D

    She's an english teacher in Japan, the video takes at most 20 minutes out of her day when she makes them. She really has ABSOLUTELY no life, you're right.

    I just watched a lot of them. Skipped 5 or 6 though about minor points in the story. She makes really good video's. At the end of most video's she gives awards, and in the catagory "best pair" I would give her an award as well.

    Ah, but you're incorrect, my use of symbols only ranged to exclamation marks~

    Indeed, she is quite good at reviewing the series, although a bit awkward it seems, still, I couldn't help but laugh when she those hiccups!
